This piece of writing by Alex Rennie was inspired by
 Gavin Bishop from his book
 'Piano Rock'

 Sometimes on a Friday night 
 Dad asks Mum, “do we have any smoked chicken?”

 Then he makes his ‘world famous’ risotto.
 He would find the perfect pan and pour the risotto rice in and start adding the chicken stock!

 Soon it starts to smell like heaven, so I rush out to the garden to pick some parsley for the garnish.

 Dad always get someone to set the table
 (yep that’s usually me!)

 By the time that’s all done Dad yells “dinners ready!” and we all come.

Awesome Alex!!

Bicycle Monochromatic Art

Monochromatic Art

In Room 7 we are getting ready to do some bicycle monochromatic art.  This fits in well with our Transportation unit we are doing this term.

We have taken our photos...

We are going to do some sketching then play around with paint and tones of colours we can create by adding black and white to our main colour.

This is what we are aiming for.

Check back to see how we go with our art.
